Prominent internet personality Asmongold has rebuffed claims made by Andrew Tate that YouTube is systematically disabling comments on videos concerning him after his banishment from the platform.
Background: Andrew Tate’s Ban from YouTube
In 2022, Andrew Tate, known for his contentious views on women and a variety of other subjects, was barred from YouTube.
Despite this, creators on the platform haven’t shied away from the topic of Andrew Tate, with related content continuing to pervade YouTube.
On June 28, Tate proposed a theory that YouTube was automatically disabling comments on videos mentioning him. However, Asmongold was quick to counter this assertion.
Asmongold’s Rebuttal to Andrew Tate’s YouTube Theory
Via a tweet, Andrew Tate alleged that YouTube had devised a “new plan in their battle against the truth.”
He continued, asserting that he garners the highest viewership on the platform and that YouTube has retaliated by disabling comments on videos where he is discussed.
“They instead automatically disable comments on any video which mentions me. You have to manually turn comments back on,” Tate proclaimed.
Asmongold, however, promptly dismissed this theory in response to Tate’s claim.
“That’s not even true dude, I farmed you for a video less than a week ago and none of that happened,” Asmongold retorted.
The Twitch celebrity has frequently expressed his opinions about Andrew Tate over the past year, sharing his views on the controversial influencer’s ban from various platforms.

Tate had been excluded from Twitter for a number of years as well until he was reinstated by none other than Elon Musk.
